Learning is a lifelong process that should not be limited by age, as it continues to hold immense value in old age. Engaging in learning activities even during the twilight years is believed to foster mental stimulation, sharpen cognitive abilities, and keep the brain active. In Pema Gatshel’s Goenpawung village, 75-year-old Samten is a living example. The elderly woman is rolling back the years and breathing new life into learning through Non-Formal Education or NFE.
